fourth volume of his biography of lyndon johnson, "the passage of power," the years of lyndon johnson. this is about 45 minutes. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. that was such a wonderful introduction. such a wonderful introduction it reminds me what lyndon johnson used to say when he got a nice introduction. he used to say he wished his parents were alive to hear it. he said his father would have loved it and his mother would have believed it. you know, when winston churchill was writing his great biography of his ancestors someone asked him how -- he said i am working on the fifth of a projected four volumes. i am not comparing myself to winston churchill but regard to the lyndon johnson biography we are in the same boat. i have been writing about lyndon johnson so long that people ask me don't you get bored? the answer is the very opposite is true. the one reason i don't think of these books as being about lyndon johnson just as i didn't think of the power brokers being about robert moses, i never had the slightest interest in writing the book just to tell the wife of a famous m

johnson complained the federal budget did not reflect all of the federal government. lbj appointed a commission to try to settle this debate. in 1967 that commission decided that the deaths of agencies in fannie mae should be included in the federal budget. in the case of fannie mae that would have added $2.5 billion. we couldn't really admit we were spending all that money subsidizing home mortgages so lbj's white house dust off eisenhower's idea. housing legislation in 1968 provided for the sale of fannie mae to private shareholders. that is johnson's signing the bill but fannie mae would still have a charter from the government and it would still have a role in public housing policy. it would still look and feel a lot like a government agency. no one seems to have fought much about whether there was a contradiction between having a public policy role but being owned by private shareholders wanting maximum profits. officially the government would not guarantee the debt. the government would officially denied that it had any responsibility for fannie may's debts but fannie mae would

them. >> he knew those boys at the pentagon. doris, here's a great example of lyndon johnson, the man you knew so well. lyndon johnson wouldn't go out holding press conferences talking act eisenhower. this segment is not going to be about ike, but it is -- we're just talking about presidents who rise and presidents who fall. eisenhower's on his way up by now. but you had, of course, lbj constantly drawing on johnson's -- on eisenhower's wisdom. >> and, you know, the great thing about eisenhower, too, was just that he was so popular among the people. that great song "i like ike, because ike is easy to like," no one else had such a good song. but lbj is rising, too, and i think it's about time that he does. he left under such a cloud, the scar in vietnam so, so painful at the time he left, and the combination now of some distance from the war, the recognition that what he accomplished domestically we cannot take for granted, three great civil rights laws, medicare, just the vibrancy in those tapes, all you have to do is listen and he's back alive again swearing and being the most fascin

. >> reporter: we spoke to the defense team for michael maurice johnson who said they need to respond to that hearing submitted by the state. the baltimore state's attorney's office wants to show a video that shows phylicia barnes having sex with the defendant's younger brother alongside the sister who is engaged in sexual relations with john covent the defense wanted to keep the tape out of the courtroom for sensitivity for the family but says now it will be used to their advantage. attorneys say it shows barnes and johnson are friendly, which is a different light that was presented in johnson's bail review. we don't know how they believe the tape will support their case against john son. the state wants to close the courtroom when the tape is played but the defense will argue it should romaine hope because that is michael johnson's constitutional right. the trial date is still scheduled for january 22nd this issue will have to be ironed out before then. we'll have are on and abc2 news at 11 as the attorneys speak to us about their defense. cheryl conner, abc2 news. >> baltimore

johnson, i wrote in that book no teacher had never cared if these kids learned or not. this teacher cared. he thought it was so important they learn english. and he was saying the boys and punish the girls if he heard a word in spanish. ..spanish. he would go among migrant worker shacks to get them so they would drive the kids to baseball games so they could have the debating team and baseball team like white kids. but the thing that got me. you could say that is just an example of lyndon johnson always trying to do the best job he could at whatever job he had and that is the character of johnson. i feel i know he really wanted to help because he didn't teach only the kids. he taught the janitor. the janitor's name was thomas coronado. johnson insisted he learned english. he brought a textbook and every day before and after school he and coronado would sit on the steps of a school and coronado says -- johnson would pronouns, i would repeat, johnson would spell and i would repeat. i think lyndon johnson cared about civil-rights. the second part of your question, how did he get kenned

safe cosmetics which has been around for about 10 years saying that -- getting johnson & jn -- johnson saying we're going to get carcinogens first out of our baby products across the whole world and that's really significant because they found formaldehyde in baby's johnson shampoo a few years ago, they tested it a few yearser later and found that johnson & johnson has taken it out of their products in china and other countries but not in the united states, well, if you can do it in one country, why can't you do it in all of them, doesn't everybody deserve safer baby shampoo no matter where they live? that put a lot of pressure on them because the consumers said we don't want those things in our products and the change happened and now they have a plan with timelines and clear transparent goals to get those chemicals out of their products. it might be a little slower than we'd all like as consumers but it's moving in the right direction and getting one major company to move put a lot of pressure on those other companies if they want to maintain their credibility, so we're se

come to washington as administrative assistant to the congressman. i thought johnson's program was very vulnerable, which it turned out to be. so i wrote this book. it was very stilted and, i wouldn't say formal, but not very well written. i guess i developed a style. i did a number of commentaries for many years for both cbs and then for npr and i had to write these sure things. they had to be pretty punchy. so my riding style is kind of a lawyer's analytical writing, an awful lot of writing that is not legal, and writing an awful lot of stuff that had to be punchy. that is stirred into the pot. >> during this time, you said there were two 0.1 million -- i don't know what they were called then, but the colonists in those days in this country? >> there would have been 2.1 million whites. it is very imprecise because they had official censuses in a few colonies. >> where were the population centers? >> the population centers, the biggest populations were pennsylvania and virginia. massachusetts had a good size population. west virginia was growing by leaps and bounds as people went

one thought that mike mansfield could replace lyndon johnson. that is certain the way things work. as my book starts, the first chapter is about byrd. it is entitled "the grind." he is a hard-working. robert byrd has a concept of what a senate leader should be. moves on thely were concept. he hates to be referred as the senate mechanic. a cotton to the leader's role -- it got him to the leader's role, but he wants to get into foreign policy. one of the first things he does is he reaches out to one of the senator full rightbrights. he gets a call from senator byrd's office. they ask him to come in interview. he is stunned. he does not think senator byrd cares about or and policy. -- foreign policy. senator byrd convinces him he wants to be involved in foreign policy. as the book unfolds and as i learned about it, it is amazing to see how strong he is on foreign policy almost from the beginning. he plays this phenomenally important role. it is not just who has the votes, but he understands the substance better than anyone else. they all went down to panama, but he leads one of the f
